Gluten Free Brownie


I should have posted this before but forgot.  😀  I went to Cavendish, PEI this summer and was pleasantly surprised to find a great gluten-free restaurant.  We had supper there the first night and breakfast the next morning.  Chez Yvonne’s has a great choice of gluten-free meals and best of all … tastes great!

I just ate the best gluten free pizza that I have had in a long time.  It is made with quinoa and very simple to make.  The recipe calls for goat cheese but I used cheddar which was all I had in the house.  I definitely will be making it again.  Here is the link to the recipe.  Thanks to my good friend Sue for trying it and letting me know how good it is.  ?… GlutenFreeSuzieQ

I watched a show recently about how popular a Gluten-Free diet is now and all the products that are available, I believe it was Marketplace.  They mentioned shampoo and that it shouldn’t cause a problem for those who are gluten-free.  Well, I disagree with that remark.  Not long after I became gluten-free, I was feeling very good, no nausea, diarrhea, etc.  All of a sudden I started feeling a lot of nausea again.  I was puzzled because I knew I had not eaten any gluten.  I started checking and rechecking labels on everything I ate.  I started thinking about any new products I had started using lately.  Having just changed my shampoo, I decided to check the label … sure enough, it had WHEAT.  I stopped using it right away and in a couple days I was again nausea-free.  That, for me, was a confirmation that gluten in shampoo can affect a Celiac.  I don’t know how it does, but it does and no one can convince me that it doesn’t because I experienced it.  Heck, just breathing in flour when baking something for my husband caused me to be sick and I was very careful to not let the flour fly around, I believe I had even used a mask.  So, my advice, don’t take a chance on using shampoo with gluten.  😀
